Sorry, No History Today

     So, you have that going for you.

"Which is nice."
    Due to a family emergency, I was unable to write the latest installment of "History of the World" (good grief, my history of the Hebrews is dragging on forever, huh?).

    Of course, I could have written something earlier in the week and put it on delay, but what do you think I am?  Organized?

    Anyway, I'll be in Maine next weekend on a planned trip to visit the other old bastards from my Navy squadron.  I'm sure we'll bore regale each other with exaggerated tales of derring-do, derring-don't, and alcohol abuse.  Oh, and keeping tabs on Soviet submarines.  I'm sure naptime will be scheduled.  We're not getting any younger, you know. 

You know..."tip of the spear" stuff.
    Since this is a planned time away, I'll be sure to prepare the latest chapter of History of the World early in the week.  I'll then put it on delay, so you'll be none the wiser (you'll also be none the wiser about history once you read the thing).

  That said, I'll "see" you next week when I delve into yet another tale from Sunday School (hey, it's all I got until we get to the Persians).
"Until then, stay groovy.  Babe."

Must have gone to Special Bollards School

BTW, I realize I'm probably going to Hell for this.

"Oh, you're going to the Dominican Republic for your honeymoon?  That's fantastic!"
"I know, right?"
"It's such an exotic destination!"
"We can't wait!"
"And the beaches!"
"Tell me about it!"
"The romance!"
Loving every minute!"
"And the bleach in the sodas!"
"Absolu...wait.  What!?"

Happy Independence Day!

     Or "Fourth of July" to the rest of the world.     Yes, yes, sigh, I know.  Many other countries, other than the United State...
